Vieux Carré Commission Design Guidelines
In 1986, the Commission adopted Design Guidelines that set forth procedures and city ordinances relating to the Vieux Carré historic district awnings, paving, lighting, security treatments for window, gates and fences, roofing, painting, air-conditioning and exterior mechanical equipment, skylights and more.
The Vieux Carré Commission is currently in the midst of updating the design guidelines and any persons interested in doing work on a property in the Vieux Carré Commission may email the VCC staff with questions.
The complete printed guide is available from the Commission's office at a nominal charge.
The revised guidelines have been approved by the Vieux Carré Commission but are currently awaiting final approval from the City Council.
